Security on our platform is our foremost priority, and we are always looking at ways to further enhance the safety of trading for all users.  Through knowing who our customers are we can also better tailor our products and trading experience to maximise customer satisfaction.


Cryptocurrencies have come a long way in their 10 years of existence, and user identity verification is increasingly expected as part of compliance programmes intended to meet evolving international regulatory standards. 


We support the efforts of regulators to help establish standards for cryptocurrency products that will underpin the advancement of this rapidly growing asset class.
